    i'm sure there was a post in here but after looking through all 7 pages couldnt find it....

    when the client machine is on, my modem on the host machine starts dialling
    i figured its msn msger' so i asid cancel sign in and disconnected the modem
    minute later i go into start menu.... starts dialling again

    basically i dont want it autodialling
    how can i stop this?
    at the same time i dont want to stop control from the client machine in the dialup account as i want it to have full control over it

    Have you checked the mail program on the client isnt set to check for mail messages ?

    Thanks for the reply, ive managed to solve it.

    It was in network connections>dialup account>properties>advanced>
    something like establish a connectin when a network computer needs it or something

    overlooked it many times
    so glad though!

    btw.. it wasnt just mail. i could close it and it would still happen.
    scary thought that whe nothings open, it >needs< the internet
    ms spyware??? :p
